Are You THIRSTY?

"Blessed are those who hunger and THIRST for righteousness, for they will be filled!"
Matthew 5:6


Yesterday at church, our THIRST Revival Conference started and all I can say is WOW! I must admit, my toes are sore from being stepped on, but you know what....that is EXACTLY what I have needed.

Last night we talked about SUBSTITUTIONS we use for God; things that we do instead of meeting with God....people that we run to first when things happen instead of taking it to God.....my idols. I was amazed at how many I actually had, and I didn't like it one bit! We were then given a styrofoam cup to write down those things that were keeping us from having the intimate relationship with God that we should so earnestly be seeking, and encouraged to place them at the feet of Jesus.


My soul is being refreshed and my heart has found it's joy again, but my THIRST has not been quenched. I am so looking forward to another evening of meeting with my personal Savior!

PRAISE GOD!

Glad I came across your blog. I, too, feel like I have been refreshed. We have been having a revival spirit at church but we aren't in a meeting. Just a Good Pastor and people wanting God's blessings. We are amazed at what the Lord is doing.

I'm thankful there are still ministers out there who aren't afraid to step on toes!!
I'm glad my husband is one of them.

The styrofoam cup illustration is a great idea! :)

Refreshing our soul and quenching our thirst is kind of like the manna God rained down on the children of Israel in the wilderness. We must gather it fresh everyday of our life :-)
